The updated Creta to be launched in India will be different from the facelifted Creta showcased at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show in November last year.
It is expected that the Brazilian-spec Creta will not be launched in India. Instead, Hyundai will update the current model. The updates will be limited to cosmetic changes.
The 2017 Creta facelift will likely get minor updates in the front and rear of the SUV. Hyundai is also expected to add new features to the already successful SUV.
Although the major highlight of the updated Creta will be the Mild Hybrid Technology to improve fuel efficiency. Currently, Maruti Suzuki offers this technology in its Ciaz sedan.
The 2017 Creta will be powered by the existing 1.6-litre VTVT petrol engine, 1.4-litre CRDi diesel engine and 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine. It is expected that the updated SUV will come with mild hybrid system which is similar to Maruti Suzuki's SHVS.
If at all Hyundai launches the 2017 Creta with the mild hybrid system, then the SUV will be benefited from Central Government's FAME scheme. Under this scheme, electric and hybrid vehicles will get incentives which will reduce the pricing of the SUV in India.
Tata Motors has launched its premium MPV, the Hexa in the Indian market. Check out the extensives photos of the crossover SUV by clicking the gallery below.
